Things To Keep In Mind
First of all, the fries must be covered in oil because it promises an even cooking outcome. You must use the oil that has a higher and even heat distribution that heats up the pan quickly. With this being said, you need to opt for the nonstick pans or the deep stainless steel pans. As far as the oil is concerned, always use sunflower oil, vegetable oil, or clarified butter for frying the French fries.
In case of temperature, you need to use the medium-high flame because the low flame will lead to slower defrosting, hence the soggy fries outcome. Always add the fries when the oil is shimmering and make sure you don’t crowd the pan with fries because it can adversely impact the cooking outcome. Also, never cover the pan after adding the fries because it tends to crackle the oil.
You must not season the frozen French fries before or during cooking because the salt seasonings can lead to moisture, and the fries will start sticking to each other. Once your fries have gained the crispy golden appearance, use the frying spoon net to eliminate excessive oil, and use paper towels to soak up the oil.
